Bonjour ^^ Ca fait longtemps que je ne suis pas revenue... Je viens de terminer un texte que je devais rédiger pour demain raconter la vie de Charlie Chaplin, mais je pense que j'ai quelques fautes, car je ne suis pas vraiment très avancée en anglais et comme je dois étudier ce texte, j'aimerais être sure de moi... Donc le voici (pas besoin de faire de recherches pour vérifier le contenu, je voudrais juste savoir si la structure, la grammaire, ect est correcte ^^ ) :
Charlie Chaplin is a famous English comedy actor, but also a great director, composer and musician. He defended silent theatre and spread it into the world. Yet, his childhood wasn’t so happy : he was born on 16 april 1889, 4 days before Hitler, in London. His parents were both music-hall entertainers and Charlie learned singing from them. Charlie’s father gave up his family when Charlie was only 3 years old. Charlie’s mother had a mental disease and while she was at the psychiatric hospital, Charlie had to live in a orphanage and, later, with his father and his alcoholic mother-in-law, with very bad conditions for a child. When he was 5, Charlie began to sing, to replace his mother who couldn’t do it anymore. At age 7, he lost his father who dead in the street because of his alcoholism. Between 9 ans 12 years ,thanks to his brother Sydney, Charlie started a career in the theatre. In the meantime, he met Stan Laurel, who became one of the most important friend of Charlie. From 1903, he got a lot of contracts in theatre, whose the engagement in the Keystone company. That’s with this company that Chaplin began to became famous in the whole world. He started to play in some films. But Charlie couldn’t stand the rules used by the contemporary directors anymore. So, he decided to make his films himself. He had immediately an extraordinary success.
Charlie stayed a real defender of the silent theatre. He became a professional in mimes because he wanted everyone to easily understand him and that was an universal language. Over the years, the silent theatre was disappearing and he began to introduce a few dialogues in his films. His last silent film, who also was the last of the history of the silent theatre and one of the biggest, was “Modern Times”. At the beginning of the second world war, he created his first dialogue picture, “The Great Dictator”, in wich he played the character of Hitler. It was an act of defiance against German dictator Adolf Hitler and nazism. Unfortunately, the film had been forbidden in Europe until 1946. In 1952, on a ship to England, he was informed that he might not be permitted back into the States because of his alleged leftist views. So, he settled in Switzerland with his family, until his death, in 1977. Before that day, he received a few awards : for example, the international peace award. Charlie dead when he was 88 years old. He had 11 children and he got married many times, everytime with women much younger than him.
Merci d'avance (:
